Double Bass, ASO (2004)

Double Bass, ASO, painting by Sam GoldingOil on linen
118 x 118 cm, shaped stretcher

The drawing on which this image is based shows the involvement of the player with the instrument.

The shaping emphasises this with the diagonal formed by a high point on top right linking to lower left being congruent with the line of the strings of the double bass.

The linen tone is kept and used to “footlight” the figure with highlights and shadows on the mid tone.
